Undergraduate Academic Advisor
Danielle Shu is the undergraduate advisor for the Food and Resource Economics program under the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences at the University of Florida. She serves as the main point of contact for undergraduate academics and potential students interested in the major. Prior to her appointment to Academic Advisor in May 2019, Danielle served as the department’s academic assistant and served as a back up advisor due to her previous experience in advising at UF.
Danielle earned her B.A. in Business Administration from the University of Florida, which ultimately lead to her interest in higher education and interest working in FRE as an advisor. After beginning her advising role, she completed her M.Ed in Student Personnel in Higher Education at UF due to her interests in student success and academic and student affairs collaborations. Since then, she received several honors from the university in addition to professionally affiliated organizations such as Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education (NASPA) and National Academic Advising Association (NACADA), in which she received the 2021 NACADA Outstanding New Advisor achievement.
Understanding the wide diversity of career opportunities of graduates from the B.S. in Food and Resource Economics and the unique student focused learning environment of the department, Danielle hopes to continue educating the benefits of completing the FRE degree. Any individuals interested in potentially declaring the major should reach out to Danielle via email to find a time to further discuss qualifications and fit in the department’s undergraduate program. The best method of contact is email.
Danielle currently teaches AEB3935, Food and Resource Economics Seminar in Fall/Spring semesters and AEB4941, Practical Experience in Food and Resource Economics every semester.
